Howto create a second ftp service on a different port in Solaris 10 (Doc ID 1331415.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When using the Solaris 10 Operating System the ftp service is not configured via inetd.conf but rather by the SMF (Service Management Facility) framework. The default ftp service will run on port 21 (ftp) and 20 (ftp-data) and now the task is to configure a second additional FTP service on a different port.
